    Well now we have MT-Card 1.1 we now have a official Safe way to play Region Free Official game carts
    MT-Card were nice enough to not have any bricking code in the 1.1 Release so this is alot safer than the previous attempts

    you do not need to patch anything for this
    and you do not need the 3DS flashcard, unless you wanted to play ROM Image Files

    using a DS card and and installing the DS Settings Exploit (MSET Exploit) is all you need

    1) Install the MSET Exploit
    2) place the Launcher.dat from the 1.1 release files onto SD card
    3) Boot the exploit
    4) launcher Classic Mode fromt here menu
    -Done, you can now Play Retail Carts-

    Optional Extra for higher Firmware Compatibility & E-shop
    5) using MT-Menu backup NAND image to SD
    6) make a backup of the SD card to a COmputer
    7) install emuNAND to the SD card
    8) copy saves and other SD card items back to SD card from PC backup (no need to place the NAND image you backed up though)
    9) update emuNAND using the update settings options (make sure you are in the emuNAND when doing so)
    -Done-

    I know the red card isn't involved in all of this , but I'll ask anyway , does the mt card launcher detect the red card of the gateway or the clones?

    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    It doesn't detect them, it just won't recognize them.

    ???
    if you have a MT-card both work fine
    use Gateways Files b2 if you want emuNAND on your gateway

    thanks for de-reailing a topic that isnt about flashcards BTW

    Decided to switch to MT-Card's firmware to play retail games region-free. I'm happy, it's all I wanted.

    yea
    least people who now have a 4.5 console and solely wanted Region Free have a safe option, lets just hope MT-Card Team keep there releases Brick Code Free and looks like will keep having the Latest emuNAND updates and Region Free :D
